Muslim preacher Fethullah Gülen has donated $15,000 to support post-disaster relief efforts in Japan, which was shaken by a magnitude 9 earthquake and tsunamis last week.

In the aftermath of the massive earthquake that hit the country, Gülen donated $15,000, earned from sales of his books and audio recordings, to leading Turkish charity association, Kimse Yok Mu (Is Anybody There), to support earthquake victims. Kimse Yok Mu has been carrying out relief efforts in Tokyo and Sendai with a nine-member team.

Gülen also released a message stating his condolences for the country, which was published by the Zaman and Today’s Zaman dailies. Gülen said in his message that the earthquake and the ensuing tsunami that took place in Japan, with which Turkey has always maintained friendly relations, has made all of Turkey upset and deeply affected the country.

Gülen also voiced his belief that the Japanese nation will overcome the difficulties created by the disaster and heal their wounds in a short period of time as they did in the past. “Hereby, I wish that God grants the Japanese people patience and extend my condolences to them,” added Gülen.
